NEW YORK (AP) — A California woman who admitted stalking Hugh Jackman has been released after a guilty plea and nearly a year in jail in New York City.

Katherine Thurston was freed Wednesday, although she's due back in court Thursday to work out probation details.

The Bakersfield, Calif., woman was arrested last April. Police said she followed the "X-Men" star into a Manhattan gym where he was working out, pulled out a hair-filled razor and threw it him. He wasn't injured.

Court records show Thurston pleaded guilty earlier this month to stalking, harassment and burglary. She was sentenced to six months in jail, which she'd already served, and five years' probation.

Defense lawyer Liz Beal says Thurston aims to go back to California and see her family.

Jackman's publicist has no immediate comment.
